Discovering the resource mining experience in your library

Veröffentlicht am

Today, with the advent of information technology integrated with each other, NTU Library’s has a vast field of information and resources across the access for patrons to discover. NTU Library has made progressive improvement on the library catalogue, showcasing more than 775,000 books in the physical collection. And, this is growing at about 22,000 volumes per year. In addition, strategically align to the model the library’s technology and systems at NTU Library. They has built and maintaining seamless access to retrieve more than 110 databases and journals across her subscription. In addition, they have also created more than 30 subject guides to create viral knowledge awareness into the online community, showcasing, sharing and guides on the collection resources that they have. As each year, the resources in the library grows, discovery relevant desired resource would be a tough task for the patrons. Even though, the library catalogue is still one of the key assets, today. On the other hand, patrons (students and scholars) begin routinely bypass library catalogues, in favour to other discovery tools to search, scan and retrieve their desire information needs. Thus, making catalogue to be decline, with its processes and structures start to face unsustainable and change needs to be swift to bring back the traffic of usage. In addition, for the technology librarians the widespread expansion of digitization projects, ubiquitous e-journals and the raise of e-book added to the pressure. Thus, in this paper, the technology and system librarians shares their experience in implementing a web tool for discovering the resource mining in NTU Library – The Web Discovery Tool. Here, the team shares on the (i) need of web discovery tool, (ii) the choice and administration of the tool, (iii) the strength and capability of the discovery tool (vi) the challenges of the discovery tool and (v) the return of investment in implementation of the discover tool. Along side, sharing out in the attribute of new media built into the tools and helps the patrons’ learning and research in locating resource effectively and efficiently.

Information Concierge: The Ideal Model 6 “.. libraries could enhance their current role in supporting their respective user communities and life-long learning through performing the role of an info- concierge, or as a network of inter-connected info- concierges and true collaborators.” (Foo, Ng, & Soh, 2008).

Information Searching Behaviour 9 The characteristics of this group gravitate towards the following traits (Oblinger & Oblinger, 2005): - Preference for group activity - Believe it’s cool to be smart - Are fascinated by new technologies - Are focused on grades and performance - They are most likely to consult each other - Are busy with extracurricular activities

  17. 17. The Idea of Web Discovery Kicks In 17 Content These services harvest content from local and remotely hosted repositories and create a vastly comprehensive centralized index—to the article level—based on a normalized schema across content types, well suited for rapid search and retrieval of results ranked by relevancy. Con-tent is enabled through the harvesting of local library resources, combined with brokered agreements with publishers and aggregators allowing access to their metadata and/or full text content for indexing purposes. Discovery These services have a single search box providing a Google- like search experience (as well as advanced searching capabilities). Delivery These services provide quick results ranked by relevancy in a modern interface offering functionality and design cues intuitive to and expected by today’s users (such as faceted navigation to drill down to more specific results). Flexibility These services are agnostic to underlying systems, whether hosted by the library or hosted remotely by content providers. These services are open compared to traditional library systems and allow library greater latitude to customize the services and make the service its own. 1. 2. 3. 4.

  20. 20. But, we have Federated Search 20 PATRONS Librarians
  21. 21. What is Federation Search 21 (1) transforming a query and broadcasting it to a group of disparate databases or other web resources, with the appropriate syntax, (2) merging the results collected from the databases, (3) presenting them in a succinct and unified format with minimal duplication, and (4) providing a means, performed either automatically or by the portal user, to sort the merged result set.
  22. 22. What about Web Discovery, then 22 A discovery service is a search interface to pre-indexed meta data and/or full text documents. Discovery services differ from federated search applications in that discovery services don’t search live sources. By searching pre-indexed data discovery services return search results very quickly. Discovery services are touted as an evolution beyond federated search and in some ways they are. Some discovery services either provide integration with federated search or provide an API for others to do the integration
  23. 23. What about Web Discovery, then 23 At this stage, even they are able to search certain databases Web Discovery is still in the process of development and refining, the platform is a suitable evolution for the Next-Gen Library Catalogue. This is because we are only able to search metadata from a pre-index data and not live fulltext searching. Never less, the cumulative traffic has increased access tremendously to the over visitorship of the digital library. The reason of ease of use and friendly user interface.
  24. 24. Web-scale discovery (WSD) Concept 24 The Ins and Outs of Evaluating Web-Scale Discovery Services by Athena Hoeppner (1) the web-scale discovery platform: - Single search across the central index - Fast response time - Relevancy-ranked results list - Facets, sort, and other tools for refining and using the results - Connections to full text via direct links and OpenURL - End-user accounts and features (2) the central index may include these elements such as, (i) library supplied data, (ii) open access and public domain data, (iii) publisher metadata and full text, (iv) web service discovery-licensed material and (v) mutually licensed. (3) the discovery layers such as, (i) branding and customisation, (ii) searching, (iii) advance discovery, (iv) relevancy and refinement, (v) end-user features and web 2.0 and lastly (vi) enhancement.
  25. 25. Learning Experiences 25 Discovery Layer Relevancy Ranking: - Does the relevancy expose the kind of material important to the users? Search/Discovery Tools: - Do the basic/advanced options, facets, and limiters enable the users to find the content they seek? End-User Features and Controls: - Do the folders/lists, tagging, exporting citations, and other features support user interaction with the content? Interface customizations: - Can librarian control the branding and layout, include widgets, and use APIs? Results Enrichment: - Is it possible to enhance the results with book jackets, external information, and recommenders? Overall Usability: - Do users understand the interface and make good use of the options?
  26. 26. Learning Experiences 26 Central Index Mutually Licensed Content: - Does the central index help expose the rich metadata from the current subscriptions? Item Types: - Does the central index include item types important to the library? - Are the results full of item types that user do not want? - Is content from specialized indexing - - searchable? Full-Text Indexing: - Does the central index include the backfiles for journals and have searchable full text for a variety of sources? Discovery Layer Relevancy Ranking: - Does the relevancy expose the kind of material important to the users? Search/Discovery Tools: - Do the basic/advanced options, facets, and limiters enable the users to find the content they seek?
